Came for an end of season stay at the purple pig, got free transport from the port. Greeted by very friendly staff and a great location; the barman (George) made our stay with great drinks and never ending patience. Being a group of 11 twenty-something uni students, we could be quite rowdy at times but not once did he show... More

This place was a good hostel, well priced and very close to the beach. Staff are all very accommodating, rooms are large with good ac, hot water and a bar fridge. Like almost everywhere in Greece, the wifi isn't great but it is passable. They do a free transfer to and from the port. The only downside to this place... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Purple Pig Camping. We were 2 couples and we enjoyed our stay at this camping very much. Great staff! Very kind! Beautiful pool! Perfect location! We had 2 small tents and we had enough room in the shades to put our tents. The bathrooms and toilets are clean and basic. We would be... More

This place is awesome, Ios is a very big party island and at the purple pig you could party or chill. George is the guy who runs the place and he is one of the friendliest people I've ever met. He becomes friends with everyone. It's got a cheap bar and nice food right by the pool, which is where... More

Ios is famous for being a sort of party island for young girl and boys around 20. Most of them stay in Chora or close to Mylopotas beach (where there is also the big Far Out Camping). I stayed in Purple Pig Camping for 3 nights at the beginning of August, finding it very relaxing and well positioned. 100 meters... More

As most of the other excellent reviews on here, this place is the place to stay in IOS if you're looking for budget accomodation.. Like most others here I can't show how much appreciation we have for Georgey boy and his family! I was due to stay at far out camping in a tent with no electricity, fan or wifi... More

You must stay at purple pig stars for your time in Ios. Why? In short, it has the best location, it's family run, has the friendliest staff and is the best value. Purple pig is only a 7minute flat walk to the party place 'far out camping', and 12mins walk to town. The beach is a 1min walk with water... More

This hostel is great value for what it is worth. George and his family are hilarious and make the stay a great one. The position of the hostel is great - close to the beach, bus stops and town. The rooms are simple and quite clean. Definitely recommend staying here for a relaxed holiday
